Quarantine passes are no longer mandatory in Metro Manila as age restrictions were relaxed, now allowing those aged 18 to 65 to go out.
The Metro Manila Council (MMC) chair and Parañaque city mayor Edwin Olivarez clarified that the requirement of quarantine passes may still depend on each local government unit, particularly if they still have existing ordinances in place.
The general community quarantine (GCQ) guidelines, however, do not require residents of Metro Manila to carry their quarantine passes with them whenever they go out of their homes.
Last May, quarantine passes were not needed anymore when Metro Manila initially shifted to GCQ. However, LGUs required them once again when the region reimposed the stricter modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) from August 4 to 18.
The country has now logged over 360,000 confirmed cases, some 311,000 recoveries and almost 7,000 deaths.
